    Description

    Streamflow is an essential variable in understanding the functioning of watersheds and associated ecosystems because it supplies the primary medium and source of energy for the movement of water, sediment, organic material, nutrients, and thermal energy. Changes in streamflow are almost invariably linked to changes in other watershed processes such as erosion, sedimentation, woody debris dynamics, and heat transfer-processes that are also important to aquatic communities and discussed in other chapters
